"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of live. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."

-Melody Beattie

What a difference an "attitude of gratitude" can make! Pope Francis has spoken of the importance, in family life, of saying "thank you." Of course, it is not the words that are important but the intention and meaning behind them. To say thank you means "I appreciate you." The Irish for thank you, go raibh maith agat, is much more expressive than the English. It translates "may you have goodness" or "I wish you goodness." It serves to soften and deepened a relationship.

Today’s Gospel is often described as a story about faith, and it is true that Jesus emphasises the faith of the man who was healed. But it is also very much a story about gratitude. The man who turns back to Jesus has had his life transformed, and he is eager to thank him. I was always puzzled by the meaning of the last words spoken by Jesus: "Your faith has saved you." Surely he had already been saved from his illness, as indeed had the other nine who showed no gratitude? They all received the same gift. But by thanking Jesus, the Samaritan man has entered into a relationship with him; he has become his friend and disciple. That is what Jesus means when he says he has been saved.

Gratitude is an important part of faith. What blessings do you have to be grateful for today? Have you let God know?

-Tríona Doherty
